They say that anyone who touches the Ganges' purifying waters is cleansed of their sins. We woke up for a sunrise visit to witness the plentitude of life surrounding the river: one man sat Indian-style, meditating; another lathered up in soapy suds; a yogi embraced the sun in a downward dog; and many locals just simply soaked, like this fellow! He happily floated on by and gave us a wink!
